    Best in the series

    Once again, haters are going to hate. While I cannot say I love some of the design choices when it comes to the HUD, I actually like the majority of the character designs and the attention to even small details put in the game. Overall the graphics for it are really good. So this one goes back a bit more to the days of Marvel vs Capcom and less of Marvel vs Capcom 2, while keeping the fluidity of 3. Confusing enough for you? Marvel vs Capcom tried to put a focus on select teams in the sense that X-men vs Street Fighter did. This got washed away with two mostly because 2 had no real balance and it was more about picking which characters had an infinite loop you could pull off. Marvel vs Capcom 3 tried to bring balance to the series while also being fairly accessible to new people. Which it is easy enough to start. Having the controls stream lined so that many of the moves got changed from knowing whether or not to press punch or kick into knowing if one was attached to L, M, H, and then having S is a launcher with fewer moves using it. Most simple combos were L, M, H, S and Hold, L, M, H, Assist 1, L, M, H, Assist 2, L, M, H, S. You got the cross-over bonus for doing it as well. What happened was that people found being exploits and so the combos started going on and on and on. This will happen in Marvel vs Capcom Infinite, but it is not going to be as simple. Someone is going to complain about me saying that. Basically Capcom said they got frustrated that many characters were never used and some got only used really as Assists do the setup. A good example is Doom and Morrigan. Both can stand on their own, but have great Assist options like Doom's missiles and Morrigan's Kiss. Which brings us to now. Now we have the LP, LK, HP, HK from Marvel vs Capcom 2, with an Active Switch and Stone Surge. While it has ease of access with LP Auto Combo, Easy Supers (which started in MvC2) and of course auto follow, you can see where the easy complaints come in. Until those things get taken away. Which for tournaments they will not exist. If you want to get good at the game, you are also better off turning those options off. Fairly simple to do. Going back to the two team system has really brought the focus more to the characters themselves again. Many of the characters have way more new options and new moves. Your more basic combo has switched to LP, LK, HP, LK, cr. HP, down-up, LP, LK, HP, HK, into an Active Switch. For people like me that is fairly simple even if not as simple as from UMvC3 and something that does not get used much when playing high level. However it is basics like this that become more out of reach for new players. It also forces a new set of thought processes into the game and now that Active Switch is a thing, you will see some really crazy options come into the scene. Let us of course not forget the Stones. While a Stone Surge has some cool effects and can extend combos, a Stone Storm can really change things up. Like X-Factor on steroids. From giving you elemental attacks that blaze across the screen, bring you ally back to life with the two of you fighting together, a barrier that limits your opponents movements, changes to your attacks allowing moves that did not connect before to connect, an extreme power upgrade or way more meter. All of these things of course become pointless if you have no idea how to use them properly. What this does on a negative side is that now people that want to play without Auto-combo and such, have a bigger gap to cross against those that fine tune all of these things to their play style. It also means that things like Doom's missiles, cannot come from a single button press. With Active Switch timing on moves becomes more about a combo setup until you can switch back. Mission Mode has a few that show how to take advantage of that time. Now let us get back to the basics with game modes. You have Story Mode first. I actually enjoyed it. Yes it is written very dry and there are points that are missing that people would like answers to. So like having actors read a comic book aloud. However it is better put together than many movies I have see, Dark Knight trilogy and Iron Man 3, and it has quite a few good moments. It gets you an overall idea of what has happened and how events led to this while leaving the story open for more to come. Which means, this only the beginning of the reboot to the series. It is over 2 hours long. While the voice acting is a mixed bag, that is more opinion than anything else. I like some that others don't and dislike some that others like. You have a basic arcade with no story pieces, but it unlocks titles and outfit colors. You have online ranked, unranked, friend matches and even a low rank Lobby. I think the low rank lobby was an awesome idea by the way. You then have vs CPU and 2P local. Overall I am really excited about what the high level play at tournaments will look like. I got bored with UMvC3. So hopefully we will not be seeing a lot of the same style repeat matches this time. I like the options and how it offers more to others. Those that hate the Story Mode also can easily ignore it as it adds something without really taking away and we still have access to Mission Mode to really get used to the basic ideas of setups. As in most cases, a vast majority of these combos will be ignored at high level play and most do not add the stones. What we have mostly is people that hate the 3D designs that went more to the Marvel style. The artwork hints that Marvel likely did the basic groundwork for the designs. But X looks on point and I like Ryu's overall design more in this one. Most of the complaining comes with this when a company makes adjustments. The limited edition has a nice metal case plus the Season Pass. If you are part of the Gamers Club Unlocked, you get the 20% off. It was worth it.

    Great for $40 bucks not for $60+

    It's a good game, mainly because of its zany, complex and freestyle gameplay. Getting that out of the way, it's a mediocre product at least on day 1: the roster is mostly uninteresting/recycled, with tons of missing opportunities considering how many great characters they could have gone with from both sides. To make matters worse, interesting characters are indeed coming (with one of them being already done but left out for extra cash)...but for an additional fee. The graphics are disappointing not only because the art style is not flattering to half of the cast but it can also get quite straining for the eyes when any player activates an infinity stone and everything becomes tinted with a fluorescent color. Finally, single player content is severely lacking with a weak story and no arcade endings or any extra unlockable content to stimulate new playthroughs. Voice acting is WILDLY amateurish for most of the cast (with a few notable exceptions such as Chun Li or Dr Strange) and the absence of a japanese track really hurts the experience (just try listening to Morrigan or Spencer's accidentally hilarious "let's get this party started!"). HOWEVER, the gameplay IS completely revamped for the better and as long as you're willing to put the time and effort in learning the characters, you'll probably get a kick out of MvCI. I personally recommend waiting for a price drop; getting this game + the first 6 DLC characters for 60 bucks sounds more reasonable than what Capcom wants you to pay right now

    Good, Not Great

    A good game, but could've been much better. While the gameplay itself is honestly super solid, there really isn't that much content outside of the Story mode. Sure, you can play through arcade mode, but unless you wanna unlock some extra colors (2 for each character), there isn't much incentive to do so since there aren't any character specific endings, just a "CONGRATULATIONS" screen right out of the old Smash Bros games. The roster is varied enough to be fun, but lacks a lot of the more colorful choices that made MvC3 fun for me like Amaterasu, Viewtiful Joe, and MODOK. The Infinity Stones are a pretty cool gimmick though, I just wish there were more ways to use them than just a replacement for 3's X-Factor and a single new move. Maybe in a few more years we'll see a "complete edition" that adds all the DLC (and there's gonna be a lot of DLC if the higher ups have their way) and will give you more bang for your buck. But right now I can't fully recommend this unless you want to play online, and even that I hear is pretty dead. Just play MvC3 until then, the games really aren't comparable, but there's far more content in 3.

    A disappointing downgrade of a great series

    I'm a long time fan of the Marvel vs Capcom series. My experience with the Marvel fighting game series dates all the way back to Marvel Super Heroes. If anyone should have been hype for this game it's me. Sadly this game was a disappointment in a number of ways. Graphically, the game looks pretty bad. Character models range from average to downright ugly. The roster of MvC games is always one of the main draws, and the roster for this game is not only disappointingly small, but some of the selections are very questionable. No doubts this was done so Capcom could cash in on DLC, which is a bit infuriating. MvC:I features an all new fighting engine/system, which allows for a lot of creativity. You can tag in your partner at almost any time, which really allows for combos and setups that were not possible in any previous installment. It can make for some exciting gameplay, and is a breath of fresh air into the series. Despite that, the game is an overall disappointment. I can't help but feel this game is a test run for the proper sequel that we HOPE we'll get one day.

    If you are a fan of the VS series the gameplay feels right at home... Everything else is very lackluster and really not acceptable when compared to its competitors. Menus are clunky (when people told me this I really did not imagine how bad this could be, there is literally a one second delay between selecting different menus and options), animations / graphics look like they were rushed or had no budget, single player content is non existent outside of a 1-2 hour story mode. The game is a DLC fest with many seasons of gouging the consumer for $15-20 season passes for 5 characters and some costumes. Not a recommended purchase unless you are a fan of the series already and are aware of what you are getting into, go buy Tekken 7 or Guilty Gear Xrd Rev2.

    I was a fan of marvel vs. Calvin back on the 360. The new iteration differs a tad in that you control a team of 2 heroes vs 3, and the pace maybe a tiny bit slower making for something a little less about furious button mashing (despite how explosively fun it was). You also have the infinity stone system in place granting different perks based on your choice their. There's a large roster from both the canyon and marvel side, and while you shouldn't expect much in terms of story, the frantic and furious action are what keep you coming back. Recommend for fighting fans.

    Given that this game has a majority of the returning cast of the previous game youd expect a great game. Not to say that this isn’t but it doesn’t feel as great as it could have been. It’s still very enjoyable though. These DLC money grabs need to stop though. If I’m buying a game for $80 I want a complete package! Not half a game that then requires the purchase of dlc to enjoy the full roster.

    This game is pretty good. It is fun to play overall, but I wish they had more characters and a better storyline in story mode. Story mode ok, but not great. The final boss is really hard, which was frustrating. I liked the steelbook and the dlc content that came with the deluxe edition. Overall, the game is good, but needs some improvements to make it a better game.
